Liturgical Stoles - The Ordinary Season

The color palette of green Batiks for two stoles for the Ordinary Season.  Tustin Presbyterian Church, in Tustin, CA.  I Mistyfused larger pieces of fabric, and cut them into 2" squares, using my rotary cutter.  The squares were fused to wool blended felt on both sides. There is a right side and a wrong side.


Free motion machine quilting.  The green paraments for the Ordinary Season have these same leaves on them.  I made them about 5 years ago. Click here to see the cloths from 2006.
